In a response to Carly Hardy on facebook regarding the previous pastel post, "Bright Flow":
Carly: Must learn to push more in my paintings!! Love the way your colors flow into one another but still retain their own identity!"
I responded: "...sometimes you just have to insist on the colors. For me, it is often an arbitrary choice, and then I have to see if it works on that spot just fine or if I have to make modifications there or elsewhere to resolve the new color. It's easy to get artsy - cute... a fine line between something thrilling or just tacked on for effect. This was a good day at the office."
Carly Hardy does great color work...check her out.
